    a blushirt would have a tenant family sleeping on that – keeping the recovery going boys

    reminds me of college and our contraceptive couches, so called because you couldn’t possibly have sex on them.

    That’s a beautiful kitchen. And not contravening any minimum standards for rental accommodation regulations.
    Except for lots of them.

      1. The Old Boy

        Nearly every standalone fridge has an icebox. Is that sufficient for the regulations? It’s all I’ve ever seen in small rentals.*

        *I promise I am not a rack-renting landlord, honest.

          I used to assume an icebox was sufficient because it’s generally all I’d seen in smaller places as well but, nope, has to be a full fridge freezer.

    The ad is unbelievable! At least there’s a beautiful fuchsia plant! Which should be shoved so far up their arrogant, money-grubbing behinds that they’re spitting petals! Actually, shove the pew up there too!

      I’m sure they’ll sob to you about the following:

      1. They have a mortgage so they’re the real hard up people;
      2. It’s their property – why are you trying to communist them out of getting the maximum possible with the minimum work;
      3. Minimum housing standards = unreasonable red tape which the thrusting entrepreneur should be entitled to ignore;
      4. As my young toddler would say, “IT’S MINE! MINE!”

    1500 a month? for that… thank Feck that i am not at the mercy of the landlord class. that reminds me of the kips we used to end up in after the pub back in the eighties. minimal in an ‘ah sure it’ll be grand’ . That bathroom is screaming City Living i tell ya

    You know when people abuse places like this they forget that there are many people who are happy to own them and live in them on a daily basis. The vast majority of houses within the canals are tiny. We’d all love to live on Ailesbury road but it ain’t gonna happen. If you read the report it states that a new bathroom suite is being put in. If you read the report it says there is a washing machine. I can’t see a washing machine but perhaps it is elsewhere, beside a freezer. People looking to rent properties in Dublin need to get over themselves.

    1. The Real Jane

      They’re looking for 1500 big ones a month for that kip. Now, nobody’s arguing that it’s tiny (it is) but that it’s in extremely poor repair without the facilities that you should be entitled to expect (and in the case of the fridge freezer, are legally entitled to expect) for that kind of money.

      It’s gouging, plain and simple.

    Why is it a “kip”? Looks a perfectly nice little house to me

    As for the rent… if you bought that house tomorrow you’d be looking at mortgage repayments of around €13000 a year including life insurance etc. Add in landlord insurance, registration with the RTB, provision of a BER cert, repairs etc I’d expect to need around €1200 a month to break even. Personally if I had an empty house I’d do AirBNB. Not really worth the hassle of tenants for €3k a year before tax

    1. The Real Jane

      It’s a kip because it is in a frightful state of repair. The kitchen is completely inadequate and appears to be coming apart. There is no sign of a comfortable place to sit. It is in very poor decorative order and looks smelly.

      That’s why it’s a kip.

    Only for rent to good catholics and as we all know, good catholics always recite, the rosary every night, directly after the angelus and just before the night prayers.
    Pray harder.
    Surprised ikea are not marketing this special knock down price.
